Do you have software, that you could print out the individual letters, or do tests of how the spacing looks in the software? Different fonts need to be spaced differently to look correct when it's all done. I would do small stuff in my software, larger images by printout from the software, and I personally would eye it up, but most people would probably measure. What font are you using? I hope you get more answers, cause I've seen some great towels in Projects! Best of luck, Marji
I do have Customizer and can print. Just got it working properly. Mainly I lack extra time to experiment and don't want to wreck a towel. (I have a 2 yr. old!!) I never know what lower case alph goes best with the decorative first letter. Of course, the first towel I'd like to do has a long name (Anabella). As you can tell, I'm new to this! Thanks for your help!
Hope this site helps you, it has many other things other than just towels too.
this covered it all. By far this is the best placement chart I have seen. Thanks bunches.
Thanks so much!
Thanks for the tips
Spacing between the letters depends on the font size, towel thickness, and what you are writing. Always try it on a scrap first. I use old towels or cheap ones from bargain bins. Don't forget to use a wash away stabilizer on top if you are not embroidering on the band.
You've been so helpful. Thanks so much!
By the way, got the bee design. Thanks!
From Embroidery Library:
Monogramming and Placement on Towels
Bath Towel 4 inches above the hem, if the towel is unbanded; if banded, place monogram 2 inches above the band. Use large letter size; 3 - 4 inches in height
2 inches above the hem, if the towel is unbanded; if banded, place monogram 1 1/2 inches above the band. Use medium letter size; 1 1/2 to 2 inches in height
1 1/2 inches above the hem, if washcloth is unbanded; if banded, place monogram 1 inch above band. Use small letter size, 1/2 inch to 1 inch in height
Wow, thanks for the detailed answer!
